WAMPServer 3 installation incorrect

I have an issue because PHP is not displaying part of a web page that I control. It is probably a simple fix. There is a login page which correctly displays 3 buttons to update a mysql database. When any of these buttons are pressed, the page correctly goes to where the PHP is supposed to, but the web page is blank.

First, I did a google search for "PHP debug Win 10". I found out that most people are using the VS Code framework for debugging PHP. Since I didn't have PHP installed on my local machine, it became apparent that I had to install it.

Next, I did a google search for "PHP download Win 10". I installed the latest PHP in a PHP7 directory.

Then I did a google search for "PHP doesn't display in a web browser". This pointed me to Stack Exchange, and one of the solutions suggested was WAMP, which led me to this situation.

The WAMP icon in my system tray indicated 0 of 3 necessary services are running (it eventually says 2 of 3, but the icon stays "burnt orange"winking smiley, so the icon becomes "burnt orange" instead of red. When I select under "Tools" to test Port 80, it says that "*** ERROR *** This Service is NOT from Wampserver - Should be: 'wampapache64'. When I try to re-install all services, it reports:

Your port 80 is actually used by:
Server: Microsoft-IIS/10.0
Cannot install the Apache Service, please stop this service and try again.

(I think I will have to kill the web browser and start over)

===== Tested by command netstat filtered on port 3306 =====

Test for TCPv6
Your port 3306 is used by a processus with PID = 11580
The processus of PID 11580 is 'mysqld.exe' Session: Services
The service of PID 11580 for 'mysqld.exe' is 'wampmysqld64'
This service wampmysqld64 is from Wampserver for MySQL or MariaDB

===== Tested by command netstat filtered on port 3307 =====

Test for TCPv6
Your port 3307 is used by a processus with PID = 7652
The processus of PID 7652 is 'mysqld.exe' Session: Services
The service of PID 7652 for 'mysqld.exe' is 'wampmariadb64'
This service is from Wampserver - It is correct

There is never a green icon.

Should I re-install it or am I far enough along (in you opinion) to go from where I am?

Hi,

> Your port 80 is actually used by:
> Server: Microsoft-IIS/10.0
This shows, once again, that you don't read anything, nothing of nothing, when you install a program!
It is very clearly displayed:

- Disable IIS

I followed the instructions you provided in Troubleshooting #8 and have a blue-green icon now. It means that everything is running as expected.
